True Blood’s Kelly Overton was seen in True Blood’s season 5 as Rikki the werewolf who could more than match Joe Manganiello’s Alcide. Now, she is to guest star on the tv show, Beauty & The Beast. She will be in the fourth episode, and the role is potentially recurring.
Kelly will play Claire, an intelligent and extremely athletic doctoral student who hits it off with medical examiner Evan (Max Brown) after they meet online.
The CW series, based loosely on the 1987 CBS drama, starsSmallville alum Kristin Kreuk as Catherine Chandler, a cop who witnessed her mother’s death years prior. Turns out Cat was saved from her mother’s gunmen by Vincent Keller (Jay Ryan), a doctor-turned-soldier who was transformed into a beast after a faulty military medical experiment.
Also appearing in the new CW series is Jeremy Glazer, who will play a med student named Michael whose fiancé has gone missing.
Beauty and the Beast premieres on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 9/8c on The CW.
